Summary from goodreads.com:
Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?
The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.
Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.
Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.
It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?
What the hell did I just read? Seriously, whatever I thought I was expecting, this was NOT it! But that’s not a bad thing, not at all. I was just not expecting the hot steaminess that was Kaleb.
Kaleb Walker is one of seven Walker boys, and is best friends with Zoey Stranford. They have been secretly pining for each other for years, but decide to take their relationship to a new level. Kaleb and his brothers have a reputation in town for their sexual preferences, and Kaleb is no different. Kaleb likes to share his women, with his best friend Gage.
Zoey gives in to the fantasy of her m / m with Kaleb and Gage, and those scenes are HOT. Like scorching, make you moist hot. I had no idea going into this that this book was going to have a menage, but I really liked it – A LOT.
There is also a back story with Kaleb and his brothers wanting to purchase the land that Zoey’s dad lives on to start their resort, Alluring Indulgence (can you guess what goes on in this exclusive, invitation only resort:) and how her dad gives Kaleb a hard time about the land. This was a fast read, and not the greatest story, but the sex makes the whole thing worth it. Kaleb is a stand up guy and treats Zoey really well. He is also kind of alpha. I also really liked the relationship between the 7 brothers – that was a cool part of the story. Overall, this was a good read, and I’ve already started on the second book, Zane. And I never read a series back to back, so that has to tell you something!
